The Alliance Training

No other organization serves the training needs of the piping industry like the United Association.  For over a century, the UA Has been training the most highly-qualified workers in South Jersey, the United States and Canada.

Over the past several decades, the UA Local 322's training programs have produced a stable, skilled workforce responsible for building and maintaining piping systems in the various industrial, commercial and residential facilities that make up the Southern New Jersey landscape.

No one can match our commitment or investment to training.  The UA International spends over $100 million annually on training programs involving over 250,000 journeymen and apprentices in over 400 local training facilities at any given time.

If the United Association International wanted to select the area which best reflects this commitment to the training and excellence, it would look to South New Jersey and The Alliance.  The agreement between the South Jersey Mechanical Contractors Association and UA Local 322 is partnership that produces excellence in the Plumbing and Pipefitting Industry.

The training facility at UA Local 322 is always filled with apprentices in our 5-Year Apprentice Program.  Apprenticeship in the pipe trades is a highly selective program.  Each apprentice has been carefully screened.  No one with drug or alcohol problems can qualify and acceptance for training depends on the applicants qualifications and the manpower needs of the trade at the time of the selection process.  The bottom line is that we ONLY select the most qualified candidates.  The intensive technical training program consists of at least 8,500 to 10,000 hours of on-the-job training and approximately 1,080 hours of related classroom training.

As you can see, The Alliance boasts the most trained, safe, drug-free workforce in Southern New Jersey and we would welcome you to tour our facility so that you can see it first hand.
